Here's what I do. If paypal sends me anything thru email I go to the site. If that mesage doesn't pop up, I delete it. 99% of those messages are spam or trying to get your identity.

I just delet them. Figure if they want my info they will contact me when I log in

Later,
Blackrain

No, it's legit, at least it seems to be. It doesn't even give me the option of adding funds from my account. I called the customer support number on the paypal site and that's what they told me they needed. I love shopping online, especially on bst sections of forums, as I know a ton of people on here do as well. But I'm not too keen on handing over copies of my personal id to anyone that isn't a potential employer.

That's weird they want the DL and all that. I had to send them my social OR tax ID. I haven't had any issues since.

I actually called them and asked about it when I got this notice, and they let me confirm it was me over the phone. I did email them a picture of a piece of mail but they said it would take days to go through, I didn't want to wait

That definitely sounds like a phishing scam. Beware.

As an update my transfer went through with no issues.

I was worried about this when I started getting serious about buying and selling this year. I pulled all of my past sales from July 30th and before, and placed it into a spread sheet. I had already hit a 13k mark and very close to 200 transactions. With that in mind, I'll be slowing things down going forward.

I haven't gotten anything like this but I always assume if it says "dear Paypal member" instead of my full name, it's spam.

This was legit, I was never given an email notification but was informed by paypal once I logged in..

You are able to do everything you could before without providing the information they requested BUT add funds to your account..

You can still pay using paypal and have the funds transfer from your bank account like normal dirrectly from your bank account to the seller ..

You can still accept payments ect ect..

Once gave them my info it took a day of verifying and Im good..

again, this was dirrectly through the paypal site, no paypal links through email ect..

That's exactly what I'm dealing with. Hire did you get them the info they wanted? They told me to fax it, but I don't have easy access to a fax machine.
